and in the statehouse and active working with congress so that's where they are really focused now as they say this as a religious freedom issue. >> and aisha moody mills is here and we thought since we were talking about birth control it would be a good idea to have a woman be part of the conversation. what do you think about this? >> you underscored the key point here. why is it that women's health care is always on the line and up for debate and being poked and prodded in the courts? >> i think about this issue in a personal way, not just because i'm a woman but because i've had issues where doctors throughout my life have encouraged me to get on some kind of contraception because of real medical issues that i was having and what's interesting is debating whether there should be coverage for real health issues that we face and men are using and popping all kinds of pills for recreational sex quite frankly and hormones to enhance their ability to recreationally have sex, and no one is questioning whether or not health insurance plans should cover those pills. >> thank you so much for shiftin

to the idea. in republican statehouses, a new motto perhaps. if at first you don't succeed, cheat. joining the panel now is president of the brennan center for justice, michael waldman. every time are you on this program there's a new outrage. this may be the most outrageous. >> i deny any connection to making that happen. this is the kind of thing that gives tunism a bad name. >> yes. yes. to say the least. >> i'm no fan of the electoral college wrish think we should have a national popular vote where everybody's vote counts equally, but there is so much worse than what we have now. as you say, this would make it so that whoever wins a congressional district gets that electoral vote, but the fact is democrats, liberals, especially racial minorities, tend to be in cities or near cities, and this would wind up meaning that their votes count less. it would certainly violent, i think, the voting rights act by diluting the votes of racial minorities, and it would lock in to place the jerrymanderring which the republicans did it this time. the democrats do it some other time. if you could find

[applause] addressing our challenges will not be easy, but we are granite staters and americans, and we are supposed to do hard things. the question is whether we will live up to the grand vision that our founders had. remember, the notion that we could operate as a true citizen democracy while also becoming an economic force in the world was at the time a revolutionary one. to some degree, our ability to prove our founders right will depend on how we approach our task. scripture refers to something called gladness of heart, an appreciation of the opportunity and freedom to do difficult things. in this time and in this place, let's choose to move our state forward with the optimism and pragmatism that is our hallmark, with gladness of heart let's choose to remember what a gift it is to be citizens of the granite state. thank you.
